Chairman Walker advised those present that the purpose of this special 
meeting was to elect a new president of Eastern Illinois State College. 

In accordance with the resolution adopted March 25, 1956, regarding the 
selecting of a new president of Eastern Illinois State College, the Board and 
Faculty Screening Committee were to interview and evaluate individuals under 
consideration by the Board, and after deliberation, these two committees were to 
report to the Board with comments on not less than three individuals; then the 
final evaluation and consideration of the individuals submitted by these two 
screening committees would be conducted by the Board acting as a Committee of the 
Whole. 

The Faculty Screening Committee of Eastern Illinois State College and the 
Board Screening Committee then presented their recommendations to the Board, which 
was acting as a Committee of the Whole. 

Following a thorough evaluation and consideration of the recommendations sub- 
mitted by the Board and Faculty Screening Committees, Mr. Svmimers moved that the 
Board unanimously offer the position of president of Eastern Illinois State College 
to Dr. Quincy Doudna, who is now Dean of Administration, Wisconsin State College, 
Stevens Point, Wisconsin, at a yearly salary of $13,000; and, if the offer is 



accepted, that Dr. Doudna officially take over the duties of president of Eastern 
Illinois State College not later than October 1, 1956. The motion was seconded by 
Mr. Reed, roll was called, and the vote was as follows:

The motion was unanimously carried. 

Dr. Kevin J. Guinagh, a member of the Eastern Illinois State College Faculty 
Screening Committee, then invited Dr. Doudna into the meeting room and informed him 
of the foregoing action of the Board, to which Dr. Doudna replied, " I am prepared 
to accept your offer and hope I can deserve the confidence of this Board and its 
support and the cooperation of the faculty and its support, and even sometime its 
affection." 

On behalf of the Faculty Screening Committee, Dr. Francis Palmer expressed the 
Committee's appreciation of the professional way in which the selection of the new 
president was carried out. 

There being no further business to come before the Board at this time, Chairman 
Walker adjourned the meeting until the next regularly scheduled meeting on July 30, 
1956, at Northern Illinois State College, DeKalb, Illinois.

VI. BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS 

1. Student Union Building 

The upper two floors are virtually completed, and the finishing work on 
the lower floor is being completed. Most of the "bought-out" items of 

33 



kitchen equipment have been delivered, and they are now being in- 
stalled. The first delivery of "fabricated" items of kitchen equip- 
ments is now due, and the remainder is scheduled to be received within 
the first few days of August. The general work of finishing up is 
being somewhat dragged out, but the building will be substantially 
complete by the first of September. Westinghouse delivered the trans- 
formers on schedule last May, but when they went to install them bet- 
ween graduation and the summer term, it was found that they were made 
wrong, and new ones had to be ordered. These have been promised for 
the first week in September. When these are installed, electricity to 
both the Library and the Union Building will have to be cut off. 

Total contract amounts reported last month $753,629.40 
No change in contract amounts since last month 

2. Elementary - Juniot High School Building 

The remainder of steel joists has been received. So far as is now 
known, this job should not be delayed by the steel strike, unless it 
is of excessive duration in which case the steel doors and steel door 
frames might become critical. Most of the load-bearing masonry walls 
on the first floor are completea, and the exterior second floor walls 
are being run up. More than half the second floor concrete topping 
slabs are placed. Remodeling work on the ground floor of the Medical 
Unit of the Special Education Building, to be used for foods and 
clothing, is proceeding satisfactorily. 

The building is somewhat behind the contractor's original progress 
schedule, but that schedule was made up without considering the 
auditorium addition. Considering the auditorium addition, the building 
is approximately on schedule, and the general progress and outlook are 
good. 

Approximate status of completion: 42.5% 

Total contract amounts reported last month $1,622,701.00 

Total contract amounts to date 1,622.340.00 

Net change - 361.00 

The change from last month's report is a change order in the electrical 
work resulting in a credit of $361.00 

3. Schroeder Hall 

All the structural steel was received right on schedule, and has been 
erected, although the work of plumbing and bolting has not been 
completed. This job is being affected by the steel strike in other 
items, however, particularly the steel floor joists and the exterior 
steel window-wall framing. The steel joists, which are the next thing 
needed, were originally scheduled for delivery July 1, 1956, but in 
June the supplier advanced this date, and now the best guess for de- 
livery is one month after the end of the steel strike. Not much can be 
done until these arrive. The exterior concrete base course will be 
poured, and some of the masonry will probably be started. Additional 
plumbing, heating, and electrical materials are being delivered to the 
site. 

Approximate status of completion: 16.5% 

Total contract amounts reported last month $833,871.00 

Total contract amounts to date 833,955.27 

The difference is $84.27, the amount of the additional foundation work 
required because of hitting a few sand pockets, authorized at the June 
Board meeting.

IX. MISCELLANEOUS 

1 . Report of the Student Union Campaign 

The campaign for funds for the Student Union was started in April, 
1954. The established goal was $150,000and the date set for the 
completion of the campaign was before the opening of the Centennial 
year, January 1, 1957. Although this is not a final report, it does 
indicate that an important goal has been reached since pledges received 
now exceed $151,000. 

As of July 15, 1956, the total pledged in the campaign amounts to 
$151,041.75 and the amount received in cash is $105,226,10. The amount 
of money still due (not much of this is due at this date) on pledges 
is $44,895.33. 

The total expenses of the campaign to date amount to $5,474.85. The 
amount of envelopes and other supplies on hand is sufficient to 
complete the work of closing the campaign in a satisfactory manner. It 
is estimated that when the campaign is finally completed the total ex- 
pense will amount to not over $5,600. 

The chart below indicates how each division in the campaign stands at 
this moment . 

Initial Final Percent 
Division Quota Givers Amount of Quota 

Special Gifts 48,650 556 44,373 91 

Faculty and Staff 35,100 398 43,919 125 

Campus Organizations 10,500 74 23,606 225 

Alumni 55,750 1353 40,371 72 

Total $150,000 $151,041 

The Special Gifts Division failed to receive any contribution from 
about six large business firms that were considered as possible large 
givers. Their refusal to give anything kept this division from 
reaching 100 percent of its quota. It must be added, however, that in 
general the campaign was well received among the businesses of 
Bloomington-Normal and their contributions were very satisfactory. 

Two divisions, the Faculty and Staff, and Campus Organizations, went 
well over their quotas for this campaign. The loyalty of these groups 
connected directly with the University was very important to the final 
outcome of the campaign. The average gift of members of the faculty 
was $133.00. 

The Alumni Division reached only 72 percent of its established goal of 
$55,750. The original estimate for this division was that the more 
than 13,000 people on the mailing list would provide 1,061 gifts 
averaging $60 each. In this division early estimates were not acc- 
urate. Actually 1,355 alumni gifts (outside McLean County) were 
received, but instead of the desired $60 average gift only a few cents 
under $30 per alumni was received.

pour consisted of the second floor over unit B. Work is progressing 
on schedule.

with 857o of all footings below grade poured at this date and four 
bays of low roof and buttresses poured on both the east and west wings, 
Steel formwork is being erected for the arched roof. Work is slightly 
behind schedule because of bad weather, but many hours of overtime 
have been put in by the contractor's men to bring the project up to 
schedule.

VII. MISCELLANEOUS 

1. United Student Christian Council Meeting 

The United Student Christian Council is planning to use college facilities 
during the period December 27 - January 1, 1957, for its 1956 Christimas 
Quadrennial Study Conference. This is one of seven regional conferences to 
be held throughout the United States. This group is the central agency for 
all the Protestant student movements in the country. This is a period when 
college is closed and the group will pay for using facilities for its 
meeting. 

2. Physical Education Building 

a. Finish hardware - (emergency approval secured from Advisory Committee) 
Perkins & Will, architects, estimated $6,315.00 for the finish hardware 
for the physical education building. Bids were received as follows: 

Clark and Barlow Co., Chicago $6,540.00 

Gustafson & Steel, DeKalb 7,367.10 

Because of the steel situation, the college secured approval from the 
Advisory Committee to accept the low bid of $6,540 as submitted by 
Clark 6c Barlow Co., Chicago, and to pay the additional $225 from the 
balance of the Bond Revenue portion. 

3. Tablet Arm Chairs - new classroom building 

Permission to purchase 50 tablet arm chairs from General Revenue for the 
new classroom building, with the expectation of using them for the college 
year 1956-1957, transferring the chairs to the new building when it is com- 
pleted. Sample chairs were submitted for consideration. All chairs were 
studied by a committee of four, carefully considering durability, comfort, 
appearance, and cost. It was the unanimous decision of the committee that 
the Brunswick chair (Brunswick-Balke-Callender Company among the bidders 
listed below) was the most practical purchase, even though this price is 
not the lowest quotation received. Listed below are the bidders: 

Kuehne Manufacturing Company $15.50 

Heywood -Wake field - 15.40 

Brunswick-Balke-Callender Co. 15.12 

Norcor Company , 15.10 

American Seating Company 13.05 

Chicago Seating Company 12.95 

We should like authority to issue a purchase order for $756.00 to the James 
Simon Company, DeKalb, for 50 chairs. This company is the franchised dealer 
in this area for Brunswick equipment. This is payable from General Revenue. 

4. Offset Duplicator 

Permission to purchase a Model 350 A.B. Dick offset machine for the dupli- 
cating department. This was previously approved in the 1955-1957 biennial 
budget for the university press department, industrial arts. We plan to 
remove this printing service from industrial arts and make it a part of our 
duplicating service. Both the A.B. Dick machine and the Model 1250 Multi- 
graph have been considered by a committee of five. Prices quoted are as 
follows: 

Multigraph Model 1250 with automatic blanket wash, automatic platexer 
(a device for moistening the cylinder), and a master cylinder to ac- 
commodate unusual sized master plates and work organizer. Also dupli- 
scope and exposure frame for preparing short-run masters from type- 
written copy $3137.34 

58 



A.B. Dick Model 350 with exposure unit, work light, work organizer, 
storage cabinet (for supplies and exposed plates) and tracing table 
for masking of negatives $3146.04 

We recommend the purchase of ' the A.B. Dick machine with accessories listed 
at $3146.04 for the following reasons: 

1. For the next several months the machine will be used, in part, for 
instructional purposes. There is now a multigraph machine in use 
in industrial arts. This will permit students to become familiar 
with both machines. 

2. This machine is available for immediate delivery as opposed to an 
estimated delay of 12 weeks for the multigraph machine. This is 
important because of the large number of requisitions on hand for 
completion prior to September.

disposing of the sanitary wastes and sewage from Illinois State Normal University, 
said compensation to be a charge of $43.00 per million gallons of water used by the 
college each year, except that used in boilers and air conditioners. Mr. Dunn stated 
he had notified the Bloomington and Normal Sanitary District that there is no money 
available at the present time in Illinois State Normal University's budget which 
would allow the Board to enter into such a contract; and in order for the Board to 
enter into this suggested contract, it will be necessary for the college to include 
this additional cost in their budget request for the next biennium. Mr. Dunn recom- 
mended this request from the Bloomington and Normal Sanitary District be referred to

REPORTS OF O FFI CERS OF THE BOARD (Continued) 

Dr. Browne expressed his appreciation, as well as that of the presidents, to 

the Board for allowing presentations by the colleges on the educational programs of 

the various colleges and further stated the Board should be greatly commended for 
this. 

Dr. Browne presented his Report No. 47 , as Executive Officer, which consisted of 
four parts; namely. Part I.. Expenditures for Personal Services; Part II . Out-of-State 
Travel , 1955-56 ; Part III . Operating Appropriations , 1949-57 ; and Part IV . Miscel - 
laneous . 

In connection with P^rt I., Dr. Browne pointed out that the actual expenditures 
for personal services, for the fiscal year 1955-56, are higher than the estimates 
listed in his Report No. 41 and stated this is due to the increased enrollments which 
necessitated additional personnel. Dr. Browne further stated that it appears all of 
the colleges will have sufficient funds to pay all budgeted amounts, except at 
Eastern Illinois State College which will need contingency funds to maintain its 
budgeted rate. 

Dr. Browne stated that each year he has presented a report on authorizations 
for out-of-state travel. In Part II. of this report, Dr, Browne covered authoriza- 
tions for out-of-state travel for all of the colleges for the 1955-56 fiscal year and 
also showed the trend of these authorizations for the past four years. 

Dr. Browne next stated that Part IIIo was included in this report solely for the 
information of the Board since the Board will soon begin consideration of requests 
for operating appropriations for the 70th biennium, and he believed the information 
contained in this section might be helpful in order to give background for these 
considerations. 



90 



Mr. Stipes remarked that the increases in the budgets for 1955-57 were due to 
personal services, and that in considering budget requests for the 70th biennium, 
thought should be given to possible increases in the other line items of the oper- 
ating budgets. 

Part IV,, which covered miscellaneous items, was also presented for the infor- 
mation of the Board. 

In addition to his Report No. 47 , Dr. Browne stated that, in his position, he 
believes it would be useful if he kept in touch with classroom teaching and, there- 
fore, is planning to teach an evening extension class at Havana, Illinois, for 
Western Illinois State College, during the first semester of the coming 1956-57 
school year. 

Dr. Browne also stated that, at some future date, he would like to present a 
report to the Board on the work being done by the Allerton House Conference, of which 
he is a member. 

Chairman Walker expressed appreciation to Dr. Holmes for the wonderful hospi- 
tality shown the Board while it met at Northern.

as we are privileged to do, and honored to do, this morning. I need not present 
them because we have all met them through the interviews and have associated with 
them on occasions since. We are proud of them and hope that through the years they 
will come to know us and be proud of our board. They are going into schools that 
are going well, enrollments are high, and academic ratings are high; and with all 
these things taken together, it would seem to me that the situation is wholesome and 
healthy. I hope each of them will expand on what they find according to their 
talents and according to the needs. You are welcome, indeed, and we are happy to 
have you in the group. Dr. Bone and Dr. Doudna."

ing at Eastern Illinois State College. This report showed that the work is still be- 
hind schedule, but the rate of progress is improving. 

Mr. Stipes, Chairman of the Finance Committee, reported that, since there are 
surplus funds available in connection with the Series 1950 bond issue at Northern

99 



It is recommended that the low bid of Chapman Knives & Saws, Inc., be ac- 
cepted. This will be paid from General Revenue as provided in the internal 
budget for the Agriculture Department. 

B. Elevator - Grote Hall 

On August 9, 1956, we opened bids for the replacement of the elevator in 
Grote Hall. This elevator was in operation until about three years ago. At 
that time it was necessary to condemn it because of its unsafe condition. 
Approximately 18 months ago we asked the Hollister-Whitney man, who was on 
our campus installing an elevator in the science building, to check it and 
make necessary repairs. He informed us that he could make it safe for a 
short time; however, they would not guarantee it and recommended that we re- 
place it. After further investigation, due to the fact that the elevator 
was over fifty years old, we secured the following bids: 

Hollister-Whitney Co., Quincy $10,123.00 

Long Elevator and Machine Co., Springfield 10,933.00 

Montgomery Elevator Co., Moline 11,491.00 

Otis Elevator Co., Chicago No bid 

We, therefore, recommend the acceptance of the Hollister-Whitney Company bid 
of $10,123.00o This is to be paid from Auxiliary Enterprises - Income Fund. 
We contacted the Hollister-Whitney Company and have a letter from them, 
dated August 10, stating they would hold firm on their bid until September 
26, 1956. Complete detailed specifications were sent to the various compan- 
ies and can be secured at the Board meeting if the members so desire. 

Since there was nothing controversial, Mr. Dunbar moved the approval of the informal 
report on Western Illinois State College as presented by Dr. Beu . The motion was 
seconded by Mr. Houle, roll was called, and the vote was as follows: 

Mr. Dunbar Aye Mr. Reed Aye 

Mr. Hollingsworth Absent Mr. Ropp Aye 

Mr. Houle Aye Mr. Stipes Aye 

Mrs. Madlener Aye Mr. Summers Aye 

Dr. Nickell ' Absent Mr, Walker Aye 

Mr. Watson Aye 

The motion was unanimously carried. 

Dr. Beu also reported that the number of registrations for on-campus students 
at Western, for the coming year, is not official, but it is estimated enrollment will 
be between 2,500 and 2,600. 

Mr. Stipes commented on the "Fourteenth Annual Report of the President of the 
Western Illinois State College, for 1955-1956," as prepared by Dr. Beu. Mr. Stipes 
stated this report bears much merit and recommended all of the Board members read 
this report, if they have not already done so. 

Northern Illinois State College 

Dr. Holmes presented his informal report on Norther-n Illinois State College and 
requested the deletion of Item 4. 

1 . Purchase of Freezer 

Approval is requested for the purchase of a walk-in refrigerator to be in- 
stalled in Neptune Hall kitchen. Approximately $10,000 worth of meat is 
purchased monthly for this building, and the present small reach-in freezer 
is very inadequate. In addition to frozen meats, freezer space is needed 
for frozen vegetables, ice cream, and left-over foods. Freezer space is 
especially essential since we are able to get only once-a-week deliveries 
from most of our suppliers. 

Bids have been solicited on a 5 '4" x 7 ' 6" freezer with results as follows: 
Imperial Restaurant Supply, Chicago $1608. 

100 



Brown Refrigerator Supply, DeKalb 1488. 

The Stearnes Compary, Chicago No bid 

M. L. Brill Company, Chicago No bid 

United Refrigeration, Chicago No bid 

The bid price includes the freezer complete with unit, fully installed and 
ready to operate. Permission is requested to order this equipment from the 
low bidder, Brown Refrigerator Supply at $1488.00. This would be chargeable 
to the 1953 Bond Revenue Operation and Maintenance Account. 

2. Purchase of Waste Disposer 

Bids have been received as follows for one Herlex waste disposer Model 1100 
with semi-automatic control: 

M, L. Brill, Chicago $1202. 

The Stearnes Company, Chicago 1197. 

Imperial Restaurant Supply Co., Inco, 

Chicago 1149.97 

This unit is to be installed in Williston Hall, to be used jointly by 
Williston and Adams Halls. Neither now has such a unit and the disposal 
of garbage from these kitchens feeding a combined total of 1200 meals per 
day has become a serious problem. Garbage is currently being removed from 
these units by a local trucker on a contract basis. This has never been 
completely satisfactory and an unsightly and unsanitary situation has 
resulted. 

We should like authority to purchase this item from the low bidder for 
$1149.97 to be paid for from operation and maintenance account. Series 1950. 
Low bidder: Imperial Restaurant Supply Company, Inc., Chicago. 

3. Purchase of Piano 

For many months the Department of Music has been attempting to purchase a 
good used studio grand piano. Several companies in Chicago were contacted. 
The Lyon and Healy Company called early in August and reported they had an 
excellent Steinway piano available for immediate purchase. Upon investi- 
gation by the Music Department, tae instrument was found to be highly satis- 
factory. The price is $2245, F.O.B., DeKalb, 

Since the Board did not meet until September 17, and in view of the fact 
the company would not hold the instrument until that date, we contacted our 
Advisory Committee. They suggested that we make the purchase. The piano 
was ordered August 14, 1956, payable from General Revenue, Equipment Fund 
and was regularly budgeted in the Department of Music budget. 

4. Progress Report of Campus Construction and Improvement 

a . C lassroom Building 

Ninety percent of all concrete poured, including 507o of the roof area.

the Income Fund-Educational Operations Contingency Appropriation to the Income Fund- 
Educational Operations Refund Appropriation for Northern Illinois State College. Dr. 
Holmes stated this request was necessitated by the increased number of students en- 
rolled with a corresponding increase in refunds. 

Following some discussion, Mr. Stipes moved the approval of the authorization to 
request transfer of $5,800 from the Income Fund -Educational Operations Contingency 
Appropriation to the Income Fund-Educational Operations Refund Appropriation for 
Northern Illinois State College.. The motion was seconded by Mr. Ropp, roll was

students for the coming school year, but it is estimated that the on-campus enroll- 
ment at Northern will be in the vicinity of 4,000 students, as compared with 3,258 
of last year. 

Illinois State Normal University 

Before presenting his informal report. Dr. Bone made the following statement: 
"I have thoroughly enjoyed the people on the Board with whom I have worked. I en- 
joyed the meeting of the Building Committee yesterday and was impressed with the way 
you went into the problems, authorized further study, and gave opinions. I thing 
this is most important. Everyone showed a vital interest in the Building Committee 
meeting. I also want to say that I appreciate what Dr. Larsen has done in giving me 
so much help ."

Since there was nothing controversial, Mr, Ropp moved the approval of the informal 
report on Illinois State Normal University as presented by Dr. Bone. The motion was 
seconded by Mr. Walker, roll was called, and the vote was as follows: 

Mr. Dunbar Aye Mr. Reed Aye 

Mr. Hollingsworth Absent Mr. Ropp Aye 

Mr. Houle Aye Mr. Stipes Aye 

Mrs. Madlener Aye Mr. Summers Aye 

Dr. Nickell Absent Mr. Walker Aye 

Mr. Watson Aye 

The motion was unanimously carried. 

Dr. Bone next reported that the enrollment, to date, for the coming school year 
at Illinois State Normal University is 3,161, as compared to 3,013 a year ago on this 
date. 

Dr. Bone next presented the following building progress report: 

1. Student union building is now finished. The cafeteria is not in operation 
because certain equipment has not arrived, but it is expected to be in full 
operation by the end of this week. 

2. The elementary and junior high school building (laboratory school) is 46% 
completed and on schedule. 

3o Work on Schroeder Hall (classroom building) has been held up for a few weeks 
waiting for steel joists to arrive. This building is not, however, far 
behind the work schedule. 

Dr. Bone also reported it had been brought to the attention of the administra- 
tion at I.S.N.U. that the present boilers in the power plant would not take care of 
heating both the existing buildings and the new buildings. On authorization of their 
Advisory Committee, the administration of I.S.N.U. had a study made of the heating 
facilities. This study showed that it will be necessary to increase the boiler ca- 
pacity. Dr. Bone stated this was presented for the information of the Board only, 
and no action was requested. 

Dr. Bone next reported a question had arisen as to whether or not the new 
student union building at Illinois State Normal University should be covered by 
public liability insurance. Mr. Stipes recommended that the administration at 
Illinois State Normal University obtain an opinion from Mr. Dunn as to whether or not 
this building is considered as a State building and covered by Court of Claims pro- 
cedure before any action is taken on this. The Board concurred in Mr. Stipes' recom- 
mendation. 

Dr. Bone next called on Mr. Ensign to present to the Board another matter in 
connection with Illinois State Normal University. Mr. Ensign stated that, since the 
new laboratory school is being constructed on the site of the old university high 
school playground area, it was necessary to relocate this playground on the univer- 
sity farm. In order for the students to now reach this playground, they must cross 
Main Street, and because of the heavy traffic on this street, the administration at 
Illinois State Normal University has received requests for the installation of a stop 
light to enable the students to cross this street safely. 

Following considerable discussion, Mr. Ropp moved that the administration at 
Illinois State Normal University be authorized to negotiate with the State Highway 
Division for the installation of a stop light on Main Street and the total cost shall 
not exceed $2,000. The motion was seconded by Mr. Reed, roll was called, and the 
vote was as follows: 

Mr. Dunbar Aye Mr. Reed Aye 

Mr. Hollingsworth Absent Mr. Ropp Aye 

Mr. Houle Aye Mr. Stipes Aye 

Mrs. Madlener Aye Mr. Summers Aye 

Dr. Nickell Absent Mr. Walker Aye 

Mr. Watson Aye 

103 



The motion was unanimously carried. 

Because of the foregoing matter, Dr. Bone stated that, in his opinion, a good 
deal of thought needs to be given regarding campus planning for at least six to ten 
years in the future. 

Eastern Illinois State College 

At this time, Dr. Doudna thanked Dr. Heller for carrying on as the administra- 
tive head of the school until he arrived on the campus at Eastern Illinois State 
College. Dr. Doudna requested that Dr. Heller present the informal report on Eastern 
Illinois State College. 

Dr. Heller presented the informal report on Eastern Illinois State College and 
requested that the following item be included in this report: 

"Mrs. Louise Soares, Faculty Assistant and Assistant Director of Douglas 
Hall (part-time), be also given a part-time assignment as Faculty Assistant 
in the Women's Physical Education Department and that her salary, totaling 
$240 a month plus maintenance, be divided proportionately between the Bond 
Revenue Account and the General Revenue Appropriation." 

Following considerable discussion, Mr. Summers moved the acceptance of the in- 
formal report, together with addition as above outlined, on Eastern Illinois State 
College as presented by Dr, Hellero The motion was seconded by Mr. Houle, roll was 
called, and the vote was as follows: 

Mr. Dunbar Aye Mr. Reed Aye 

Mr. Hollingsworth Absent Mr. Ropp Aye 

Mr. Houle Aye Mr. Stipes Aye 

Mrs. Madlener Aye Mr. Summers Aye 

Dr. Nickell Absent Mr. Walker Aye 

Mr. Watson Present 

The motion was carried. 

Dr. Heller next reported that the on-campus student enrollment, to date, for 
the coming school year is 2,103, as compared with 1,919 of last year or an increase 
of 9.6%« 

On behalf of the Board, Chairman Walker officially commended Dr. Heller for 
serving as the chief administrator of Eastern Illinois State College until such time 
as Dr. Doudna could officially take over the duties of president. Chairman Walker 
stated that the Board wished to express its deep appreciation to Dr. Heller for this 
service. 

In connection with the enrollment figures given by each of the presidents, Mr, 
Stipes stated it appears that the enrollment in the State teachers colleges has 
almost doubled in the last five years. Dr. Browne stated that it appears the total 
enrollment in the colleges will near or exceed 12,000. 

Chairman Walker thanked Mr. Dunbar for the wonderful dinner served Sunday 
evening to the members of the Board and their guests, and he also expressed the ap- 
preciation of the Board to Dr. Beu for the hospitality shown the Board at this 
meeting. 

There being no further business to come before the Board at this time, Mr. 
Stipes moved that the meeting be adjourned until the next regularly scheduled meeting 
on October 15, 1956, at the Leland Hotel, Springfield, Illinois. 

Following adjournment, and continuing its policy of devoting time to the study 
of educational programs of the colleges, the Board toured the radio studios and 
broadcasting facilities of Western Illinois State College's radio station. Members 
of the radio staff outlined the stations operations and showed the Board members how 
the broadcasting schedule has been arranged to meet some of the informational and

VII. STUDENT LIFE 

A. Student Participation in Student Union Project 

A few days prior to the change of presidents at Eastern, the dean of the 
college talked with the students of the possibility of building a somewhat 
larger student union than had originally been contemplated and asked for a 
vote on whether they would be willing to pay a fee of $8.80 per quarter to 
support the cost of a building. The facilities to be in the building were 
described to the students at that time. The students voted overwhelmingly 
(about ten to one) in favor of the larger building. 

On the- occasion of the presentation of the new president to the students, 
the president announced the appointment of a joint student-faculty com- 
mittee to discuss details concerning the proposed building among themselves 
and with the architects. A committee consisting of three student rep- 
resentatives and the various administrative staff members concerned with 
personnel was appointed. This committee went to Normal and visited the 
union there and also went to Illinois Wesleyan University to see their fa- 
cilities. It then held two meetings during the following week. On October 
8, the committee met with Mr. Hilfinger and his associate and discussed the 
plans further. Mr. Summers and Mr. Browne met with the committee during 
the forenoon. Mr. Hilfinger and his associate agreed to revise sketches 
for the mezzanine floor in an effort to meet the needs presented by the 
committee. It was understood that the changes would involve no increase 
in general floor area. Mr. Hilfinger was to try to get sketches to the 
president's office at Eastern by Friday, October 12, so that they could 
be shown to the building committee, or possibly to the board at its October 
session. 

IX. MISCELLANEOUS

IV. THE ORGANIZATION No report. 

V. THE CURRICULUM 

A. Progress Report 

Dr. Francis B. Belshe, the Chairman of the Curriculum Committee, reports 
that numerous steps have been taken toward solving some of the curriculum 
problems which were discussed in the report to the Teachers College Board 
on February 23, 1956. Particular emphasis on problems of general education 
has been continued. 

During the past spring, the Committee on General Education received numer- 
ous suggestions concerning ways .of improving the program of general 
studies. These suggestions were incorporated into the continuing study of 
general education. The result was a formulation of two basic types of 
curriculum organization. These types are sufficiently distinct so that the 
faculty can express itself as to which one will best meet the general educ- 
ation needs of our students. Representatives of the Curriculum Committee 
are currently meeting with all faculty members in small groups so that the 
issues may be clarified with a view toward a faculty decision later this 
fall. 

A calendar-of -events for curriculum work has been formulated so that the 
faculty may see the schedule and sequence of decisions necessary to com- 
plete general education revision this year. 

VI. BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS 

A. Student Union Building 

The building is now fully occupied and usable, although none of the 
contracts is fully completed. From recent activities of the contractors, 
it appears that it may be at least 30 days before most of the contractors 
will be ready for final inspection, but the use of the building is not 
impeded by the few remaining items of completion, adjustment, etc. 

Total payments authorized to date $663,685.02 

Contract amounts yet to be paid 97,791.38 

Total contract amounts authorized to date 761,476.40 

B. Elementary - Junior High School Building 

128 



All of the roof deck is on, except for a very small part at the southwest 
corner of the second floor, and except for all of the third floor. Third 
floor walls are rapidly being carried up. The roof deck operations are 
being followed up immediately by the application of the roofing felts and 
gravel . 

Nearly all of the interior concrete floors have been poured throughout the 
building. Steel door frames on the first floor are nearly all set, and 
partitions laid out. 

Setting of door frames on second floor is being commenced. The glazing of 
all exterior windows is under way, and it is anticipated that the building 
will be almost completely enclosed by October 15. 

The mechanical contractors are keeping pace with the general work, and it 
will be possible to provide temporary heat in the building from the central 
system when it is required. 

This building is now fully back on the original schedule, even including 
the Auditorium addition, although the original schedule did not include the 
Auditorium. Although the finishing operations are always time consuming, 
there appears no reason at this time why good progress cannot be maintained 
from here out, and the building completed on schedule. 

Approximate status of completion 60% 

Total contract amounts reported in September $1,622,340.00 

Contract chang^es since last report - 73.50 

C. Schroeder Hall 

This job has started to move again within the last month, since the arrival 
of the steel joists. The third floor joists and concrete forming (in- 
stalled first to comply with safety requirements) are practically complete, 
and joists are being placed on the other floors and roof. 

Masonry work is under way on exterior end walls. The windows and spandrel 
panels are on the job, and erection of these will probably start some time 
in November. 

The building will probably be ready for the roof deck early in November, 
and it is hoped that it can be fully enclosed by the end of the year. 

This building is still behind schedule because of the steel strike, but the 
next few months should see it get back on schedule. It is still expected 
that the completion date can be met. 

Approximate status of completion 26% 

Total contract amounts reported in September $833,955.27 

No change since last report. 

VIII. STUDENT LIFE 

A. The following items of interest have came from the Office of the Dean of Men 
and the Dean of Women. 

1 . Student Union 

Members of the Board deserve a word of thanks for their not inconsid- 
erable part in making the new Union possible. It is our observation 
that the student body is most enthusiastic in its appreciation of the 
building. This is evidenced by the "at home" feeling which students 
express and the hard use which the building has already had. 

2. Student Payroll 

129 



With the construction of new buildings and increased enrollment, con- 
sideration should be given to substantial increases in both the hourly 
and the monthly payroll. 

3. Parking 

While we are sure that this suggestion will come from other sources, 
we feel it important to mention that in planning additional buildings 
on the campus, consideration should be given to of f-the-street 
parking. This is particularly important in the case of those 
buildings which will receive public function use. 

4. Residence Halls 

It is vitally important that immediate consideration be given to the 
possible erection of additional residence halls for both women and 
men. Students are on waiting lists to get in the halls and a number 
of prospective students have gone elsewhere when they found that they 
could not be promised residence hall space. Off-campus housing does 
not, and can not, keep up with demands. We are utilizing some off- 
campus situations which do not meet University standards. Cardinal 
Court barracks for men are sorely inadequate. Not only do they not 
meet University standards, but if their use is to be continued much 
longer, considerable money will have to be spent on their repair. 
Aside from the factors mentioned above, present and expected future 
enrollments would dictate additional University owned and operated 
student residences.

IX. MISCELLANEOUS 

1 . Purchase of Piano 

One studio grand piano was purchased during the summer (1956) in antici- 
pation of increased enrollment in our piano courses. Actual enrollment in 
these courses has been far in excess of our anticipation. As a result, we 
have a waiting list of 65 students who are getting no instruction at all and 
others are not getting the quality of instruction we feel they should have. 

In view of this situation, we should like to ask that the Advisory Committee 
be authorized to approve the purchase of a good factory rebuilt instrument 
as soon as we can find one at a price not to exceed $2,500.00. This instru- 
ment would be purchased from equipment funds (general revenue) carried over 
from the first year of the current biennium. The Department of Music does 
not have adequate funds for this purchase.

6. Withdrawals 

Just as our enrollment was exceedingly large as compared to the number 
we had estimated for the fall quarter 1956, we have had a very rare 
condition this fall which is due, no doubt, to the fact that too many 
individuals, who thought they would like to attend college, really 
should never have attempted it. Following is a brief summary of the 
122 persons who were on campus registration week and went through some 
of the registration procedures. All of these students had left the 
college by October 4. Of these 122 students, 31 were included in the 
official count of 2,501. The others were not here long enough to be 
counted as being enrolled. 

Lack of housing 32 
After paying fees could find no rooms and 

disliked driving 20-100 miles daily 18 

Unsatisfactory housing (married) 6 

Housing too expensive (married) 4 

Financial reasons 13 

Homesickness 8 
To enter military service (Air Force 3, 

Marines 4, Navy 3) 10 

To go into business 6 

Poor health 5 

Did not like college 6

operation 2 

Transferred to smaller college 4

University. She has had experience in the public schools of Yorkton, 
Marshalltown and Weldon, Iowa; Oregon and Chillicothe, Missouri; and

3. Due to the fact that a supervising teacher of home economics could not 
be secured, Mrs. Eugenia Stevens was again employed effective September 
1, 1956 as faculty assistant in the laboratory school to teach one half 
of this program. '_Ier salary is $250 per month. Mrs. Stevens received

B. Additional Teachers Required by Increased Enrollment 

1. The large registration for the fall quarter necessitated the addition 
of two classes in geography: Geography 256 with 54 enrolled and 
Geography 110 with 40 enrolled. To provide for these classes Mrs. Jean 
S. Morrow was employed for full-time work at $500 per month effective

two biology classes at $250 per month.) 

2. Mrs. Kay Rasco was originally scheduled to teach one English class at 
$125 per month. When the large registration required two additional 
sections of speech, Mrs. Rasco was employed at $375 per month for a 
three-fourths load. 

C. Correction in Salary 

1. In our July 29-30, 1956, Board report, Dr. Kenneth R. Martin's salary 
was listed as $580 per month. The correct salary for Dr. Martin, as 
stipulated in his contract, is $600 per month.

rary clerk stenographer I at $180 per month. She replaced Barbara F.

new i'Osition was approved by the Board at the July 1956 meeting.) 

2. Permission is respectfully requested to employ an additional janitor to 
be assigned to Morgan gymnasium. It is the plan to have this person 
work the hours when the other janitor is not available. It is neces- 
sary to keep the gym open additional hours each day due to the ex- 
pansion of the class, varsity athletic, and intramural programs. This 
man will be paid the prevailing rate from the General Revenue appropri- 
ation. There are sufficient funds to add this janitor effective Oc- 
tober 24, 1956. 

If the Board approved, the individual recommended for the position is 
William Earl Rich, who has been working temporarily on the grounds 
during the past summer. His salary will be $245 per month. 

IV. ORGANIZATION No report. 

V. CURRICULUM No report. 

VI. BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS 

A. Dormitories and Student Center 

Construction of the dormitories and student center is progressing at a 
normal rate aside from a few minor distractions which were ably taken care 
of by Mr. Dunbar, our local Board member, the business office staff, and 
the architects. 

VII. STUDENT LIFE 

Western's marching band made its first appearance in the new uniforms at the 
Western-Lewis game on September 19. Many favorable comments were received on 
the uniforms from students, alumni, townspeople, as well as by the band members 
themselves. 

The band also gave an excellent performance between halves at the Bradley- 
Western game in Peoria on September 29. (In fact, their appearance was the main 
feature of the game.)

VIII. MISCELLANEOUS 

A. Purchase of Bus 



In our internal budget was a request for release of $17,000 from Con- 
tingencies - Educational Income Fund for a replacement purchase of a 
Flxible bus. We respectfully submit the following quotation from the 
Flxible Company, 3420 Hennepin Avenue, Minneapolis, Minnesota: 

One (1) Standard 296 Bus with a Cummins JT-6 turbo supercharged diesel 
engine, 180 h.p. 

Base price $20,013.00 

Six additional jump seats installed 186.00 

Lettering 45.00 

One 8 -ton hydraulic jack 16.60 

Delivery to Ohio state line 35.00 

Defrost fan 15.50 

Tachograph 137.50 
Installation of radio and public address 

system (speakers from present bus) 60.00 
Two door locks - front and baggage compartments 27.00 

Flares 8.25 

Two extra rear underseat heaters 159 .00 

$20,702.75 

Less trade-in: Model 182B1-53, serial 

30650, Flxible bus with 85,000 miles 5,000.00 
Net Price $15,702,75 

The administration of this institution has investigated other buses, both 
from experience and by talking with others. We feel this is the most 
economical purchase in that the only bus that compares with this is the 
General Motors Corporation bus on which Northern has a firm price of 
$31,501.74. We did not secure this bid; however, we are sure the price 
would vary but little if at all. The business manager also met with the 
Flxible Company in an attempt to secure a better price because of the 
possibility of the purchase of three buses (Normal and Northern in addition 
to Western). We were definitely informed that this is not possible inas- 
much as the only people who receive any discount is Greyhound who pur- 
chases at least 20 at one time. 

The wheel base will be 218" and the over-all length 34' 2.75" with a body 
width of 95.5". The over-all height is 115.5". This bus with the jump 
seats will carry 35 passengers which we feel is the best size for our 
institution. Delivery cannot be made for a period of six months; there- 
fore, we are requesting approval so that the bus can be purchased and paid 
for in this biennium. Our present bus is in such a condition that we rec- 
ommend purchase at this time.

Mr. Summers, Chairman of the Building Committee, next reported that the Building 
Committee had received a request from the administration at Western Illinois State 
College regarding certain remodeling work. The Building Committee recommended that 
the administration at Western Illinois State College be authorized to obtain bids for 
the remodeling of the president's office, the dean's office, and the post office in 
the administration building at Western. 

Following but little discussion, Mr. Summers moved the acceptance of the fore- 
going recommendation of the Building Committee regarding securing of bids for the re- 
modeling of the president's office, the dean's office, and the post office at Western 
Illinois State College. The motion was seconded by Mr. Dunbar, roll was called, and

Dr. Browne reported that, at the July 30, 1956 meeting, the Board approved a 
request in the quarterly report for Northern Illinois State College to pay an ad- 
ditional $225 for the finish hardware for the physical education building at Northern 
Illinois State College. Dr. Browne further reported that, since a total allowance of 
$6,270 for the finish hardware was originally approved by the Board, not $6,315 as 
originally reported, and since the low bid received for the finish hardware was 
erroneously listed in Northern's quarterly report (which was submitted to the Board 
on July 30, 1956) as $6,540 instead of $6,510, the request should have been for ap- 
proval of an additional $240 to pay for the finish hardware for this building. 

In view of the foregoing, Mr. Watson moved that the Board approve the expendi- 
ture of an additional $15 for the finish hardware for the physical education build- 
ing at Northern Illinois State College (this $15, together with the $225 extra ap- 
proved by the Board on July 30, 1956, totals the additional $240 necessary for the 
finish hardware for this building). The motion was seconded by Mr. Summers, roll was 
called, and the vote was as follows:

Dr. Browne next reported that the United States Treasury Department - Internal 
Revenue Service had requested a resolution be furnished by the Teachers College Board 
authorizing the president of Eastern Illinois State College to sign certain necessary 
documents to enable the college to purchase alcohol for laboratory purposes free of 
Federal tax. 

Mr. Summers moved the adoption of the following resolution: 

BE IT RESOLVED, That the president of Eastern Illinois State College is 
hereby authorized to sign applications (Forms 1447 and 1450) to enable 
Eastern Illinois State College to purchase alcohol for laboratory purposes 
free of Federal tax. 

The motion was seconded by Mr. Ropp, and unanimously carried. 

There being no further business to come before the Board at this time. Chairman 
Walker adjourned the meeting until the next regularly scheduled meeting on November 
19, 1956 at the LaSalle Hotel, Chicago, Illinois.

REPORTS OF OFFICERS OF THE BOARD 



Dr. Browne presented his Report No. 50 as Executive Officer which dealt with 
"Building Construction During the Current Biennium." Dr. Browne stated that the 69th 
General Assembly had appropriated $8,595,000 for new construction, to pay part of all 
of the cost, of seven (7) major buildings, and to supplement these appropriations, 
bonds have been sold in the amount of $1,550,000. He further stated that the all- 
time record rate of construction of new buildings during the current biennium will 
result in the following: approximately 200 additional classrooms; new laboratory 
schools at three of the colleges; additional dormitory housing for some 2,500 
students; additional food service facilities in each college, thus providing meal 
service for some 4,000 to 4,500 students; student centers at three of the colleges 
and a substantial enlargement in the fourth; and provision of housing for some 176 
married students and their families. (This report presented for the information of 
the Board and required no action.) 

During the discussion of Dr. Browne's Report No. 50 , Dr. Nickell stated that, in 
the last twenty to thirty years, there has been a change from what was once referred 
to as "practice teaching" to what is now done in the laboratory school. Dr. Nickell 
requested Dr. Browne to present, for the information of those present, the philosophy 
behind the laboratory school. 

167 



Dr. Browne made the following remarks concerning Dr. Nickell's request. 

"Because of the lack of sufficient laboratory schools, we have been forced to go 
off -campus for student teaching. There was a time when the student never got into a 
teaching situation until assigned to do student teaching in the senior year, but now 
the tendency is to start with basic fundamentals in the sophomore year so that by the 
time the student enters the actual experience of student teaching in his senior year 
he is well advanced. 

"In a laboratory school, one should be able to see what can be done for the 
gifted child, as well as the slow child, whereas public schools can not do this. 
Laboratory school teachers, by and large, are more skilled teachers. A student pre- 
paring for teaching should see the unusual situations, as well as the .typical situ- 
ations, which arise; therefore, the ideal student teacher program is where the 
student teacher does some work on-campus and some work off-campus."

4. At the meeting on September 17, 1956, the Board approved the expenditure 



170 



of $2,000 for the purpose of installing a pedestrian control light on Main 
Street. Since this approval was granted, there have been further meetings 
with officials of the Town of Normal and the State Division of Highways. It 
is now proposed to install a regular traffic control signal at the corner of 
Mulberry and Main Streets. The Town of Normal has agreed to install a 
signal of the same type at the corner of Dry Grove and Main Streets, to be 
paid from funds of the Town of Normal. Since this new signal is a more ex- 
pensive type of signal, it was requested that the amount of $2,000 be in- 
creased to $7,500. Since this expenditure is to be paid with funds from the 
Income Fund, it was also requested that, if increase was approved, the a- 
raount of $7,500 be released from Contingencies - Income Fund and transferred 
to Contractual Services - Income Fund. 

In addition to his informal report. Dr. Bone presented bids which had been re- 
ceived for the printing of envelopes to be used in connection with the Centennial

made a part of his informal report and recommended the acceptance of the bid sub- 
mitted by Howard Company, of Peoria, in the amount of $1,939, for the printing of 
these envelopes. (To be paid with funds appropriated for I.S.N.U.'s Centennial 
Celebration.) 

Following some discussion, Mr. Ropp moved the approval of the informal report 
on Illinois State Normal University as presented by Dr. Bone, together with ac- 
ceptance of the bid submitted by Howard Company, of Peoria, in the amount of $1,939, 
for the printing of envelopes to be used in connection with the Centennial Cele- 
bration. The motion was seconded by Dr. Nickell, roll was called, and the vote was

In connection with the request regarding the installation of a pedestrian con- 
trol light at the corner of Mulberry and Main Streets, and in which request it was 
pointed out that the Town of Normal has agreed to place a similar signal at the 
corner of Dry Grove and Main Streets, Mr. Hollingsworth stated the Board has made 
quite a concession to the Town of Normal by purchasing one of these traffic light 
signals . 

Chairman Walker reported he had received a communication from Illinois State 
Normal University requesting the Board appoint a committee for the inauguration of 
Dr. Bone as president of the college. This communication suggested the following 
committee: Mr. Ropp, resident Board member; an alumus, to be named by Mr. Ropp, Mr. 
Wade, and Dr. Larsen; Dr. Bjarne R. Ullsvik, Administrative Assistant to the Presi- 
dent; Dr. C. W. Sorrensen, Chairman of the University Council; Dr. Chris A. DeYoung, 
Executive Secretary of the Centennial Celebration Committee; and Dr. Richard G. 
Browne, as ex-officio member of this committee. 

Following but little discussion, Mr. Stipes moved that the committee for the 
inauguration ceremonies of Dr. Bone as president of Illinois State Normal University 
as suggested by the college, and as above outlined, be named. The motion was 
seconded by Mr. Reed, and unanimously carried. 

Eastern Illinois State College 

Dr. Doudna presented his informal report on Eastern Illinois State College with 
the following requests: 

1. Authorization to receive bids for furnishing and installing new doors to 
Main Hall, at a cost not to exceed $14,250 as based on cost estimate sub-

The motion was unanimously carried. 

Dr. Browne reported he had received a letter from Dr. Byron K. Barton requesting 
his leave of absence from Eastern Illinois State College be extended through June 30, 
1957. Dr. Browne stated that Dr. Barton is now on leave of absence from Eastern to 
serve as Supervisor of Conservation Education for the State of Illinois, and his 
leave of absence is to terminate as of January 31, 1957. 

Dr. Nickell explained that Dr. Barton is now working for the Departments of 
Agriculture and Conservation and the Office of the Superintendent of Public In- 
struction in developing a program of teacher training in conservation for the State 
of Illinois. Dr. Nickell further stated that action of the coming legislative 
session will decide whether or not this will be a permanent program, and it might not 
be until June 30, 1957 that this decision of the legislature is known. In addition. 
Dr. Nickell stated that it is the wish of the Departments of Agriculture and Con- 
servation and his own office that Dr. Barton be granted an extension of his leave of 
absence from Eastern until June 30, 1957 so he can remain in his present position to 
allow sufficient time to obtain passage of needed legislation regarding this teacher 
training program in conservation for the State of Illinois. 

Because of the Board policy adopted at the July 18, 1955 meeting of the Board 
regarding granting of leaves of absence for not more than two consecutive years with- 
out salary for educational service, considerable discussion was held regarding Dr. 
Barton's request. (The original leave of absence for Dr. Barton was granted from 
February 1, 1955 to August 31, 1956 and then extended to January 31, 1957.) 



172 



Mr, Hollingsworth stated that, in his opinion, the Board policy regarding 
"Leaves of Absence for Educational Services" does not apply to Dr. Barton since he 
is still in State service. 

Dr. Nickel 1 moved that, in light of the fact Dr. Byron K. Barton is on leave to 
another State service and, therefore, still in the employment of the State of 
Illinois, the Board policy regarding "Leaves of Absence for Educational Services" 
does not apply to him, and the leave of absence from Eastern Illinois State College 
for Dr. Byrori K. Barton (to serve as Supervisor of Conservation Education for the 
State of Illinois) be extended to June 30, 1957. The motion was seconded by Mr. 
Simimers, roll was called, and the vote was as follows:

The motion was unanimously carried. 

Since the Board policy regarding "Leaves of Absence for Educational Services" is 
not specific. Chairman Walker suggested that Dr. Browne and the presidents meet for 
the purpose of clarifying the language of this policy. The Board concurred in 
Chairman Walker's suggestion.

Following some discussion. Dr. Nickell moved the acceptance of the foregoing 
recommendations of the Graduate and General Curriculum Committee regarding changes in 
graduate courses at Northern Illinois State College. The motion was seconded by Mrs. 
Madlener, and unanimously carried. 

Mr. Stipes, Chairman of the Finance Committee, reported that a great amount of 

173 



time has been spent by the Finance Committee in order to present its recommendations 
to the Board regarding the proposed budgets of the colleges for the coming biennium. 
Before submitting the budget recommendations, Mr. Stipes made the following explana- 
tory remarks: 

"Five years ago, we had an enrollment of 6,200 in the four colleges, and it is 
over 13,000 now. We were confronted with a big problem two years ago because we had 
not had any new buildings, except one, for a great many years, and enrollment de- 
manded we have new buildings. In the last session of the legislature, we were 
treated very well with appropriations for seven new buildings, five of which will be 
completed in this biennitmi and the other two will necessitate reappropriations . 

"In ex£imining these budget requests of the colleges, the philosophy of the 
Finance Committee has changed, and the Committee definitely believes that in this 
coming biennium there should be salary increases for staff members. Because of the 
increase in enrollment, the faculty members are having to teach more and larger 
classes. Because of the loss of faculty members, through resignations mainly, and 
the need for new faculty to take care of expanding enrollments, the presidents and 
their deans are having difficulty in finding sufficient amount of teachers. Hence 
the stress in these budget requests for salary increases for the faculty. 

"We have estimated enrollment increases, and I think they are fairly conserva- 
tive. We have estimated an increase of 2,770 students by 1958 in all four schools. 
The overcrowding in 1956 exceeded our estimates of two years ago by 1,895 students. 

"The salary increases in these budgets for academic and non-academic people 
total around $2,000,000, which represents 7.37o of the total budget requests. Ad- 
ditional staff memebers and other line items take up the rest of the increases. 

"We have had to put on additional staff, both full-time and part-time, during 
this biennium which we did not figure on two years ago. Where some of the colleges 
carried over balances in past biennia from Income Fund, those balances have been used 
because of this additional need in staff. I believe we will not find it necessary to 
request any deficiency appropriations or supplemental appropriations for the current 
biennium. 

"The Finance Committee met with the presidents on November 8th to discuss budget 
requests for the coming biennium, and since that day, the Committee has devoted more 
time and work on these budget requests. 

"For the purpose of preparing budget requests to submit to the Department of 
Finance, I would like very much to receive Board approval today of these budget re- 
quests. 

"In connection with the permanent improvement, land acquisition, and rehabili- 
tation requests, these needs have been given ratings, as follows: AAA (absolute 
necessity); AA(urgently needed); and A. These requests are matters which the Build- 
ing Committee and the rest of the Board have discussed and worked on for the past two 
years . The philosophy of the Finance Committee is to obtain appropriations for 
buildings which can be completed in the biennium in which the money is appropriated, 
and we have tried to follow this philosophy in applying the ratings on the capital 
improvement requests for the coming biennium." 

Mr. Stipes then stated the Finance Committee recommended the approval of the 
following operating budgets, as well as capital improvement budgets, for the coming 
biennium;

The motion was unanimously carried. 

Mr. Summers, Chairman of the Building Committee, next reported that the Building 
Committee had received a report from Illinois State Normal University regarding the 
heating facilities. 

Following considerable discussion, Mr. Hollingsworth moved that, since a heating 
survey shows that the present boilers in the heating plant at Illinois State Normal 
University will not take care of heating both the existing buildings and the new 
buildings and since it will be necessary to increase the present boiler capacity to 
correct this situation, the Teachers College Board designate the heating plant at 
Illinois State Normal University an emergency and that the 70th General Assembly be 
requested to give immediate attention to this emergency through an emergency ap- 
propriation, in an amount not to exceed $480,000, to provide the necessary repairs 
for the heating plant at Illinois State Normal University. The motion was seconded 
by Mr. Summers, roll was called, and the vote was as follows:

The motion was unanimously carried. 

Dr. Nickell suggested that this emergency appropriation bill for the heating 
plant at Illinois State Normal University be prepared immediately so it can be intro- 
duced to the legislative session on its first day of session. The Board concurred in 
Dr. Nickell 's suggestion. 



The next matter on the agenda was in connection with the proposed bond issue for 
the construction of a self-liquidating residence hall and student center, as well as 
improvements to the existing student residence halls, at Eastern Illinois State Col- 
lege. 

The first item for consideration was the approval of the building plans for the 
improvements to be made to the existing student residence halls at Eastern. 

Mr. Stipes moved the approval of the Building Committee's recommendation that 
the following improvements be made to existing student residence halls located on the 
campus of Eastern Illinois State College at Charleston, with the cost of said im- 
provements to be financed from part of the proceeds of the proposed issue of 
$2,250,000 Residence Hall and Student Center Revenue Bonds, Series 1956: 

1. Pemberton Hall - a new electric transformer together with all necessary 
wiring, pipes and equipment to connect to the existing electric system, at 
an estimated cost of $9,000. 

2. Lincoln Hall - correction of loose door frames, and conversion of toilet 
facilities, with all necessary repairs, renovations and replacements, at a 
total estimated cost of $21,000. 

3. Douglas Hall - correction of loose door frames, with all necessary repairs, 
renovations and replacements, at an estimated cost of $15,000. 

The motion was seconded by Mr. Summers, roll was called, and the vote was as follows:

Alexander A. Summers, Secretary Mattoon 

Carl Dunbar Maccmb 

J. Arthur Houle, Jr. Hinsdale

Under the control of this Board are the four teachers colleges of the State of 
Illinois: Eastern Illinois State College, Charleston; Western Illinois State Col- 
lege, Macomb; Northern Illinois State College, DeKalb; and Illinois State Normal 
University, Normal o 

Eastern Illinois State College , a State supported institution founded in 1895, is 
located at Charleston (1950 population - 9,164), about 200 miles south of Chicago. 
The College conducts both an undergraduate and graduate school and awards degrees of 
both Bachelor and Master of Science in Education as well as Bachelor of Arts and 
Bachelor of Science without preparation for teaching. It is accredited by the North 
Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools and by the American Association 
of Colleges for Teacher Education. The College enrollment for the fall quarter of 
1956 was 2,366. The faculty numbers 222. 

The College has a laboratory school with an enrollment of 353 students in tirades 
one through eight (in addition to the College enrollment) which provides practice 
teaching facilities for the College studnets specializing in teaching. The College 
is a member of the Inter-State Inter-Collegiate Athletic Conference with includes the 
four Illinois State Teachers Colleges, Southern Illinois University, and two Michigan 
Teachers Colleges. The campus consists of 147 acres with buildings and equipment 
valued at over $7^ million. In addition the College has an appropriation of 
$1,365,522 for capital improvement during the current biennium ending 6/30/57. 

No tuition is charged students attending the College, but there is in effect the 
following schedule of quarterly fees: 

Registration Fee $20.00 

Student Activities & Bond Revenue Fees* 18.80 

Total Quarterly Fees $38.80 

* Includes $8.80 per quarter increase to be allocated to the proposed 
student center. 

Non-residents of Illinois pay $30 per quarter more than shown and fees for the 
shorter summer session are proportionately less than those for the regular academic 
quarter shown above. 

Legal Authority : These bonds will be issued by THE TEACHERS COLLEGE BOARD OF THE 
STATE OF ILLINOIS for Eastern Illinois State College at Charleston, Illinois, pur- 
suant to the provisions of an act authorizing the Board to build and equip residence 
halls, student union buildings and other structures with the proceeds of bonds paya- 
ble from the revenues thereor (Sections 59a to 59e, Chapter 127, Illinois Revised 
Statutes 1955), approved by the General Assembly of the State of Illinois; and pur- 
suant to a resolution to be adopted by the Board. 

185 



Purpose of Bond Issue : The proceeds of these bonds will be used to construct 
three residence halls, two of 152 capacity each and one of 150 capacity (454 total 
capacity) and a student center building. Part of the proceeds also will be used to 
improve three existing residence halls: Pemberton, Lincoln and Douglas with a 
combined capacity of 402. Construction bids on the residence halls were taken 
10/31/56. Detailed construction plans for the student center building are in process 
of preparation, and it is expected that the construction bids will be taken in March 
of 1957. The plans for the student center building (and the construction bids) in- 
clude sufficient alternate arrangements to insure that a building capable of per- 
forming the functions for which the student center is designed can be built within 
the architect's present estimated cost. The cost of the entire project, which is 
expected to be completed and ready for occupancy by the fall quarter 1958, is shown 
below: 

Construction (a): 

Residence Halls $1,207, 427(b) 

Student Center 567 . 500 $1,774,927 

Furnishings 100,000 

Site Improvement 22,500 

Improvements to 3 Existing Residence Halls 45,000 

1 Year's Interest at 4%% 101,250 

Architect, Legal, Fiscal Fees & Contingencies 206,323 

Total $2,250,000 

Notes : (a) Including food service equipment and built-in furniture. All 
construction contracts will be covered by performance bonds, (b) Based on 
firm bids received 10/31/56. 

Description of BtJildings : The three existing residence halls whose revenues are 
to be pledged to these bonds are: Pemberton Hall, a spacious stone building pro- 
viding board and room for 90 women, which was built in 1909; Douglas Hall, a masonry 
building built in 1952 providing board and room for 156 men; and Lincoln Hall, ad- 
joining Douglas Hall with which it was built in 1952, providing board and room for 
156 women. Upon completion of the proposed new residence halls, Lincoln will be 
converted to occupancy by men. 

The proposed new buildings consist of three residence halls and a student center 
building, each of 2-story masonry construction. Two of the residence halls will have 
a capacity of 152 each, and the third which includes an infirmary will have a capaci- 
ty of 150 regular occupants (total capacity 454). The student center will include 
kitchen facilities and a 500 capacity dining hall in which the regular meals for the 
occupants of the new residence halls will be served. The student center will also 
contain lounge, game and reading rooms and offices for student activities' head- 
quarters plus a snack bar and ballroom. The student center building is designed to 
serve the needs of an enrollment of about 4,000. 

Security : These bonds will constitute a closed first lien on the net revenues 
to be derived from operation of the three new residence halls and student center 
building to be constructed with their proceeds and from the operation of Pemberton 
Hall, an existing debt-free residence hall. These bonds will further be secured by a 
lien, subject only to the prior lien of $275,000 outstanding bonds dated 11/1/50, on 
the room rental portion of revenues of Lincoln and Douglas Halls, existing Residence 
halls. The Teachers College Board will covenant to require and to adopt rules and 
regulations designed to assure the maximum use of all buildings whose revenues are 
pledged to these bonds, subject only to the requirements of the presently outstanding 
revenue bonds dated 11/1/50 which require first occupancy of Lincoln and Douglas 
Halls; to fix, revise and collect fees and charges, including student fees, to pro- 
vide funds sufficient at all times to pay the reasonable cost of operating and main- 
taining the project, to pay principal and interest on these bonds when due, to pro- 
vide at the rate of $12,500 per year beginning 12/1/58 a bond reserve account of 
$125,000, and to provide at the rate of $12,500 per year beginning 12/1/58 a depreci- 
ation account of $125,000.

These figures represent full-time on-campus students who pay full fees. Total en- 
rollment is higher. For example, in the fall of 1956 there were 96 part-time stu- 
dents on campus and 185 extension students (of f -campus) , making total College en- 
rollment of 2,366. 

Future Enrollment ; A detailed study of college enrollments, prepared in 1951 
by the Bureau of Institutional Research of the University of Illinois, indicates 
that, based on records of actual births through 1949 (the most recent year available 
at the time the study was made), total college enrollments in Illinois will steadily 
increase from the current year through 1967-68, the last year for which births 
through 1949 affect college enrollments. The results of this study are shown below:

There is shown below the enrollment which can be expected in future years at Eastern 
Illinois State College, derived by applying to the actual 1956-57 enrollment the per- 
centage increase indicated by the statewide enrollment study referred to above. The 
additional student housing to be provided by these bonds, and the new laboratory 
school building now under construction which will add approximately 257o to the Col- 
lege's instructional space, can be expected to accelerate this growth.

Housing : The three new residence halls (454 total capacity), which constitute 
part of this project, and existing Pemberton Hall (capacity - 90) must, under the 
terms of the resolution authorizing these bonds, be filled before any others except 
Lincoln and Douglas Halls (capacity - 156 each), existing residence halls whose reve- 
nues are pledged to out-standing bonds. The combined capacity of these six halls 
(856 students) constitutes only 417o of the full-time on-campus enrollment as shown 
below:

Summarized Project Revenues : The following schedule summarizes the estimate of 
the revenues available for debt service on these bonds. There is not included in 
these figures any estimate of revenues to be derived from incidental food service in 
the student center's snack bar and banquet room nor from recreational activities con- 
ducted in the student center for which a rental charge might be made. The detailed 
calculation of the following estimates is shown on the following page.

Note : (a) First full year of new buildings' operations. Revenues frora existing 
buildings will be available immediately and the student fee is to be initiated with 
the summer session of 1957. 

Fees and Charges : The initial schedule of fees and charges for the project, set 
by resolution of The Teachers College Board, is as follows: 



Residence Hall Room and Board (Same as 

now charged in existing buildings^ 
Student Center Fee (To be charged all full- 
time students enrolled) 
Regular Academic Year 
Summer Session 



$16 per Week 



$8.80 per Quarter 
$5.90 



Charges for food service (other than regular meals for residence hall occupants) and 
other services rendered in the student center building shall be adequate to provide 
gross revenues equal to not less than 1107o of the direct operating expenses incurred 
in providing such services. 



188 



New Buildings' Revenues : There is shown below the estimate of annual operations 
of the three new residence halls and the student center (in which the occupants of 
the new residence halls will regularly eat their meals) based only on the gross to be 
derived from board and room charges made to the occupants of the 454-capacity resi- 
dence halls for only the 36-week regular session. Although the student center will 
be available to the entire student body with resultant revenues from operation of the 
snack bar, banquet room, ballroom and other recreational facilities, no attempt has 
been made to estimate these miscellaneous revenues. Any additional direct expenses 
incurred in providing such additional services in the student center will be covered 
by the special charges made therefor.

capacity Lincoln-Douglas Halls for the fiscal year ended 6/30/56. (b) At $6.27 per 
occupant -week, the actual increment for all expenses, other than cost of food sold, 
incurred in providing board and room during the year ended 6/30/56 in Lincoln-Douglas 
Halls in the style of which the new residence hall rooms and the student center

Pledged Revenues from Existing Buildings : In addition to the revenues of the 
new buildings, these bonds are secured by a first lien on the total net revenues of 
existing Pemberton Hall and by a junior lien on the net revenues from room rental 
operation of existing Lincoln and Douglas Halls. Shown below are the actual total 
operating revenues of these three existing residence halls for the fiscal year ended

Notes : (a) A complete schedule of these debt service charges (for the Student Resi- 
dence Halls Revenue Bonds, Series of 1950) is shown on the following page. (b) The 
$48,056 is the total surplus from both board and room operations. Only that part of 
Lincoln-Douglas revenues representing surplus from rentals (not including Lincoln- 
Douglas dining hall operations) is pledged to these series 1956 bonds » Since all 
occupants of Lincoln-Douglas Halls receive both board and room at a single combined 
rate, that part of the surplus applicable to room rentals is a function of the allo- 
cation between board and room of the total amount charged occupants for both. The 
Teachers College Board covenants to set and revise charges so as to assure at all 
times sufficient total revenue from all pledged sources (including Lincoln-Douglas 
surplus) to meet the requirements of the series 1956 bond resolution including es- 
tablishment of reserves. There is no pledge of any part of Lincoln-Douglas surplus 
other than that for these series 1956 bonds so, in effect, the entire surplus is 
currently available to these bonds. 

Debt History : The Teachers College Board of the State of Illinois has, since 
1947 when enabling legislation was first passed, issued revenue bonds to finance 11 
projects at the colleges under its control. In each case the Board has required that 
the facilities, as soon as built, be operated in such a way as to produce revenues 
substantially in excess of all requirements including those for various reserves. 

The only one of these 11 bond issues which has been for facilities at Eastern 
Illinois State College was a $400,000 issue to supplement a State appropriation in 
financing construction of Lincoln and Douglas Halls at a total cost of $1,164,805. 
These $400,000 Student Residence Halls Revenue Bonds, Series 1950, were dated 
11/1/50, scheduled to mature serially through 1985, payable solely from the revenues 
of Lincoln and Douglas Halls » These halls began operation 9/17/52. Summarized 
below is their excellent financial record:

to establish in full the required Depreciation Fund and Bond Reserve Fund ($23,400

Chicago, Illinois. 

Mr. Summers, Chairman of the Building Committee, reported that B. & E. Plumbing 
and Heating, low bidder on the plumbing and heating work in connection with the con- 
struction of the proposed three women's residence halls at Eastern Illinois State 
College, had withdrawn its bid. Mr. Summers furtiner stated that Aetna Casualty and 
Surety Company, who furnished performance bond for said contractor had notified the 
Central Office that because of the withdrawal of this bid they are responsible for 
the difference between the bid of B. & E. Plumbing and Heating and that of the next 
lowest bidder, a difference of $4,517. Mr. Summers stated that the next lowest 
bidder for the plumbing and heating work for this project was the Ideal Heating 
Company. Representatives of the Ideal Heating Company had been contacted and they 
stated this company is willing to stand on the bid submitted, said bid being in the 
amount of $261,554, 

Following considerable discussion, Mr. Dunbar moved that, since B. &: E. Plumbing 
and Heating has failed to accept the award of contract (for the plumbing and heating 
work for the construction of the proposed three women's residence halls at Eastern 
Illinois State College) and has notified the Teachers College Board of its withdrawal 
of bid upon which contract had been awarded at the meeting on November 19, 19 56, the 
Teachers College Board accept the withdrawal of the bid submitted by B. & E. Pliombing 
and Heating, subject to the payment of the difference in the amount of bid of B. & E. 
Plumbing and bleating and the bid of Ideal Heating Company by Aetna Casualty and

Since at said meeting no firm bids were received (one qualified proposal was sub- 
mitted but this proposal was rejected because it did not conform to the terms of the

At the conclusion of the bond sale. Dr. Doudna expressed his appreciation to the 
Board, stating "this again demonstrates to me the interest of the Board shown by 
those who came today to help out with this problem at Eastern and gives us a lot of 
encouragement." 

Dr. Doudna next stated he had several emergency requests which required Board 
approval . 

Dr. Doudna requested approval of the employment of a staff member to teach and 
coach baseball (to be classified as Instructor in the Men's Physical Education De- 
partment) for the spring quarter only of 1957, said employment to be a temporary 
appointment, at the rate of $4,500 per year.

Dr. Doudna next reported that, in awarding contract for the electrical work for 
the three new women's residence halls, an alternate (to provide for a part of the 
campus loop to extend from the new residence halls to the new sub-station that the 
C.I.P.S. plans to build) was omitted as the bid on this alternate was too high. Dr. 
Doudna further stated that in the permanent improvement budget for the next biennium 
for Eastern there is an item for "Utility Extensions" for a total amount of $55,500. 
Since the portion of the campus loop which was omitted as an alternate in the e- 
lectrical contract for the three new women's residence halls would serve not only the 
new residence halls but the rest of the campus as well, Dr. Doudna requested this 
item be included in the general heading of "Utility Extensions" in the permanent im- 
provement budget for the next biennium for Eastern Illinois State College and that 
the Board increase the amount under the heading "Utility Extensions" from $55,500 
to $65,500 to cover this work. 

Following some discussion, Mr. Summers moved that the "Utility Extensions," in 
the permanent improvement budget for the next biennium for Eastern Illinois State 
College, be increased from $55,500 to $65,500 to cover portion of the campus loop as 
above outlined. The motion was seconded by Mr. Watson, roll was called, and the vote

On behalf of Dr. Bone, Mr. Ensign presented items for Board approval in con- 
nection with Illinois State Normal University. 

Mr. Ensign reported that the dedication ceremonies for both the new classroom 
building and the laboratory school building at I.S.N.U. are to be held o'n September 
16, 1957. The administration at Illinois State Normal University inquired as to the 
possibility of the Board holding its September, 1957 meeting at Illinois State Normal 
University on September 16, 1957, t;hus enabling those Board members who wish to at- 
tend the dedication ceremonies of these two new buildings » 

Mr. Ropp moved that the September, 1957 meeting of the Board be held at Illinois 
State Normal University on Monday, September 16, 1957. The motion was seconded by 
Mr. Watson, and unanimously carried. 

At the meeting on November 19, 1956, the Board designated the heating plant at 
Illinois State Normal University an emergency, and at this meeting, the Board unani- 
mously agreed to request the immediate passage by the 70th General Assembly of an e- 
mergency appropriation, in an amount not to exceed $480,000, to provide the necessary 
repairs for the heating plant at Illinois State Normal University. Since the meeting 
on November 19, 1956, Mr. Ensign reported he had received a communication from Con- 
sulting Engineering Service regarding the installation of necessary new boilers in 
the present heating plant whereby it would be possible for the boilers to be in- 
stalled next summer and ready for use by the winter of 1957. The communication from 
Consulting Engineering Service recommended that the Board authorize the purchase at 
this time of the boilers required for the heating plant at Illinois State Normal Uni- 
versity; the purchase of the boilers must be made at this time due to delivery c: 
steel from the mills and the length of time needed for fabrication. (The steel, if 
ordered now, would be delivered to the boiler manufacturer in April and the boiler 
fabrication completed by late July or early August.) 

Mro Ensign requested that the Board authorize the administration at Illinois 
State Normal University to secure bids for the necessary new boilers for the heating 
plant at Illinois State Normal University, and that the Chairman of the Board, the 
Chairman of the Finance Committee, the Chairman of the Building Committee, and Mr. 
Ropp be instructed to examine the bids received and be empowered to award contract 
for the purchase of the necessary new boilers, in an amount not to exceed $320,000, 
and said contract to include cancellation clause should the request for an emergency 
appropriation for this project fail to pass the legislature. 

Mr., Stipes moved the approval of the foregoing requests, as outlined and pre- 
sented by Mr. Ensign, regarding purchase of necessary new boilers for the heating 
plant at Illinois State Normal University. The motion was seconded by Mr, Dunbar, 
roll was called, and the vote was as follows:

In connection with the permanent improvement budget for the next biennium for 
Illinois State Normal University, Mr. Ropp requested Board consideration of including 
the following items of land acquisition: 

211 



1. Purchase of five houses. 

2. Purchase of 80 acres of land. 

Considerable discussion was held regarding these two items. 

Mr. Stipes recommended that the matter of including purchase of five houses for 
Illinois State Normal University in its permanent improvement budget for the next bi- 
ennium be deferred to the January meeting. The Board concurred in Mr. Stipes' recom- 
mendation. 

Mr. Stipes recommended that Mr. Dunn be instructed to meet with the owners of 
the 80 acres of land which Illinois State Normal University requests to obtain an 
estimate of the cost of purchasing said acreage. The Board concurred in Mr. Stipes' 
recommendation. 

Mr. Stipes, Chairman of the Advisory Committee for Northern Illinois State Col- 
lege, presented a tabulation of bids received by Northern for the purchase of library 
furniture. 

Mr. Stipes moved the acceptance of the low bid submitted by Rochelle's Inc., in 
the amount of $4,698, for the following library furniture: 10 study tables, 24" x 
36" X 29"; 9 study tables, 42" x 120" x 29"; and 146 upholstered chairs. (To be paid 
with funds appropriated for Equipment - General Revenue.) The motion was seconded by

garding changes in both operating and capital improvement budgets for the next bi- 
ennium .

II . FACULTY 

A. Leaves of Absence 

1. Miss Gertrude Hendrix, Assistant Professor and Coordinator of Student 
Teaching in Mathematics, requests a two-year extension of her present 
leave of absence without salary, from September 1, 1957, through August 
31, 1959, in order to continue her work as Project Teacher Coordinator 
of the University of Illinois Committee on School Mathematics. 



215 



B. Substitutes 

1. Continuation of Dr. Albert W. Brown as Acting Head of the Department of 
Geography, during Dr. Byron Barton's leave = 

C. New Positions 

1. Employment of Mr. Loren E. Unser, B. S. in Ed., as Faculty Assistant in 
Physical Education for Men, for the spring quarter, at a salary of $500 
per month for three months. Mr. Unser is needed to teach two courses 
and coach baseball. 

D. Change in Positions 

1. The position of Director of Student Teaching has not been filled since 
the resignation of Dr. Stuart Anderson in August, 1956. Dr. William 
Zeigel has been temporarily filling this post as well as his own of 
Director of Placement. After due consideration, we have concluded that 
it would be best to combine these two posts and recommend that Dr. 
Zeigel be assigned these duties. 

2. In order to carry out the duties of the two positions, Dr. Zeigel will 
need an assistant and additional clerical help. These two persons can 
be employed at a cost no higher than the amount specified for the posi- 
tion of Director of Student Teaching. Employment of the assistant 
would be at the probable rank of Assistant Professor and at a probable 
salary of between $620 and $700 per month for nine months. 

E. Addition to Substitute Instructor List 

1. Mrs. Virginia Rouse, B. Ed. 

III. OTHER SCHOOL EMPLOYEES 

A. New Position 

1. Employment of a Clerk Typist I for the work in student teaching and

the salary previously specified for the Director of Student Teaching.

1. Lucille Elliott, Clerk Typist I in the Business Office, at a salary of 
$160 per month, effective October 29, 1956, replacing Betty B. Catey, 
resigned. 

2. Beulah M. Lang, Maid in Douglas Hall, at a salary of $160.00 per month, 
effective November 1, 1956, replacing Maude Elder, on disability leave. 

C. Resignation 

1. Gail Willingham, Clerk Stenographer I in the Offices of Admissions and 
Extension, resigned effective January 8, 1957.

Total 

The average undergraduate class size in the first semester of 1956-1957 is ap- 
proximately 25. This is the same as the average undergraduate class size 
reported to the Teachers College Board on January 16, 1956 for the first se- 
mester of 1955-1956. Approximately Il.b/o of the classes have enrollments of 
less than ten. These classes, with relatively small enrollment, are divided 
almost equally between junior college and senior college courses. 

It is to be expected that many senior college courses will have small en- 
rollments because of their specialized nature. However, in spite of this speci- 
fication, these are important courses for the persons preparing to teach in 
specific areas. Relatively small departments will have, a number of small 
classes at the senior college level. At the same time it is also true that in a 
number of instances these small classes are taught by persons who have a full 
load in addition to these classes. This is particularly true in the field of 
Special Education where classroom teachers teach methods courses for specialized 
groups. 

There are only twelve junior college and ten senior college courses with en- 
rollments under five. This does not seem to be a disproportionate number of 
courses with this extremely small enrollment. 

At the graduate level, the number of classes with enrollments under ten is the 
same as the number reported to the Teachers College Board on January 16, 1956 
for the first semester of 1955-1956. Many of these courses are of a specialized 
nature and therefore enroll relatively small numbers of students. There are a 
few instances in which instructors have more than a full load to compensate for 
the small numbers of students in graduate courses.

VIII. MISCELLANEOUS 

A. Centennial Year 

A great many events have been planned for 1957, the Centennial Year. The 
first item, which was in a sense a harbinger of the Centennial, was the 
University history, "Grandest of Enterprises." Dr. Helen Marshall was 
commissioned by the administration to prepare and write the history. Her 
only compensation was that she was released from some classroom time to do 
this work. Pre-release copies were given out at an autographing party on 
December 20 and the official release date was January 2. To date, all of 
the reviews have been most favorable and the college has received many 
comments which are most complimentary. 

Other Centennial events are: Lincoln's Birthday celebration on February 
12, when the speaker is to be Willard King, a Lincoln scholar and the 
author of a book on David Davis, which is to be released later this year; 
Founder's Day, on February 18, when the main event will be a banquet in 
the evening with Governor Stratton as one of the main speakers; a meeting 
of the State Teachers College Board on the Normal campus on February 18; 
Centennial College Day on April 29; dedication of the Student Union on May 
18; the Centennial Pageant on May 24 - 25; the Centennial Alumni Reunions 
on June 7 and 8; commencement on June 8; sijmmer commencement on August 9; 
dedication of Schroeder Hall and the Metcalf Building on September 16; the 
Inauguration of the Ninth President on October 4; the Centennial Homecoming 
on October 17 - 20; the Twenty-fifth Administrative Round -Up on December 7. 
There are many other dates which will be celebrated and a large number of 
district, state, and national meetings are to be held on our campus during 
the year.

A. Remodeling of President's and Dean's Offices and Post Office 

On Friday, December 21, 1956, bids were received for the r.emodeling of the 
president's and dean's offices and the post office in the L. Y. Sherman 
Administration Building. They were as follows: 

Ronald Allen Construction Co.., Macomb $15,684.84 

Ostrom & Maguire, Galesburg 16,633.00 

E. E. Maguire Construction Co., Monmouth 17,289.00 

Austin Construction Co., Carthage 18,977.00 

Summers Construction Co., Macomb 18,997.18 

Earl Landis Contractor, Macomb 21,834.00 

Russell Vail Contractor, Macomb 24,985.00 

We recommend the acceptance of the low bid of Ronald Allen Construction 
Company. 

This project is to be paid by using $8,500 of the appropriation ($280,000) 
provided by Senate Bill #763, Section 14, for the rehabilitation and 
modernization of existing buildings. The balance, $6,500, will be paid 
from Contractual Services, General Revenue, as the Teachers College Board 
approved at its 'Jovember meeting this project not to exceed a total of 
$15,000. The hardware and mailbox allowances totaled $4,000, but after the 
bids for hardware and mailboxes were received, it was determined that these 
items actually cost $3,081.57, resulting in a saving of $918.43. This sum, 
subtracted from the $15,684.84 bid of Ronald Allen Construction Company, 
makes the total contract $14,766.41 which is under the $15,000 previously 
approved by the Teachers College Board for the project. The Central Office 
needs the Board's authorization to request release from the Governor of the 
$8,500 from Senate Bill #763.

REPORT OF THE 
NORTHERN ILLINOIS STATE COLLEGE 

JANUARY 20-21, 1957 

I have the honor to submit the following report: 

STUDENTS - Explanatory Note on Size of Classes Which Follow 

The table below excludes registrations for private lessons in music, for 
independent study on the graduate level, and for student teaching. The number 
of classes under 10 shows an appreciable decline over the number a year ago. 



First Semester 

1955-1956 1956-1957 



Number of classes under 10 



Undergraduate 28 21

Graduate 1_6 _]_ 

Total 48 35 

Number of classes under 5 

Undergraduate 1 3

Graduate 1 2 

Total 3 5 

The classes listed on the following pages with enrollments under 10 were 
necessary to enable majors to meet their needs and to complete a program of 
classes. Classes numbered "400" under the caption "undergraduate and graduate" 
also involve graduate students who need these courses to complete sequences in 
their programs. There are a few exceptions, as follows: 

Biological Science 256 is a special course in human anatomy for speech cor- 
rectionist majors only. Two other biology courses are pre-requisite. 

Business Education 213 is the third and most advanced course in shorthand. It 
is required for majors in secretarial training. 

English 235J, 236J, and 334J were necessary to permit students who minor in 

235 



journalism to complete the minor. 

Fine Arts 331 is an advanced ceramics class. The classroom work spaces not used 
by members of this class are assigned to an overflow from the elementary ce- 
ramics class so that the room is used to capacity. 

Home Economics 253 is a required course in clothing construction for majors. If 
this class had been cancelled, enrollment in the class the second semester would 
have been beyond the capacity of the classroom. 

Library Science 301 and 307 are classes necessary for students to complete a 
minor in this area. A major is not offered. 

Music 300 and 307 are courses in theory designed for the talented student inter- 
ested in composition. 

Foreign Language 251 was necessary to enable students to complete two years of 
German is taught in addition to a regular load by the instructor. 

Physical Science 305F and 305L are one-semester hour classes in glass blowing. 
One meets the first half and the other, the last half of the semester in order 
to dovetail with student teaching assignments.

IV, THE ORGANIZATION 

We should like to submit the calendars for the college years 1957-58 and 1958- 
59 for board approval. 

Please note that college opens on Monday, September 16, 1957 and Monday, Sep- 
tember 15, 1958. This is a departure from our previous opening dates on the 
Monday following Labor Day. This change is necessary to prevent the beginning 
of our second semester overlapping with the end of the first semester in the 
Chicago schools from which many students enter Northern in February. 

A later opening date means that at the September board meeting (9/16) we shall 
be unable to have a report regarding enrollment for 1957 or 1958 but'-we will 
send information to central office and to each board member as soon as it is a- 
vailable. This is Northern's first two-year calendar.

V. THE CURRICULUM 

Graduate Extension Centers -Arlington Heights and Mayvood 

Administrators and teachers in Arlington Heights and Maywood (Proviso^ Township 
High School) have requested a graduate extension center in each of these lo- 
cations. Both schools have excellent facilities for evening classes, fine 
libraries and Arlington Heights has a new building for its library. Classroom 
facilities in both centers are excellent. We should like permission to use both 
schools as graduate extension centers for Northern. 

Graduate Assistants - Second Semester, 1957 

Mr. Wayne Schnable, graduate assistant. Department of Social Science, resigned 
in order to carry a full load of academic work. 

Mr. Robert A. Lorenz, graduate assistant. Department of Social Science, re- 
placing Wayne Schnable, at a stipend of $600 or $75 per month for the fall se- 
mester and continuing through the year. 

VI. BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS 

Physical Education Building for Men 

Work on this building is 80% complete with work on the interior masonry par- 
titions nearly finished. Door frames are installed and certain exterior doors 
are already hung. The boiler room is nearing completion with anticipated date 
of use for about February 1. The plumbing contractor is keeping pace with the 
general contractor. Heat will be turned on about February 1. It will be neces- 
sary to allow the building to dry out for at least ten days or two weeks before 
painting can be started. However, the use of the building will only be possi- 
ble when it has dried otit enough to install the portable basketball floor, 
bleachers, and other equipment without moisture damage. 

Classroom Building 

This building is 657o complete and the contractor is presently working on interi- 
or masonry partitions and rough wood framing and blocking. Glass is being in- 
stalled and the plumber, steam fitter, and electrician are keeping pace with the 
general contractor. 

Laboratory School 

This building is %% complete with the majority of the footings and foundation 
walls already poured. Exterior masonry work has begun on the kindergarten rooms, 
The heating contractor is expediting work on the boiler room in an effort to 
have the heat available for this building as well as the classroom building as

VIII. STUDENT LIFE 

Christmas Concert 

The college chorus presented a Christmas concert on December 20-21 with over 
300 voices which was splendid from the standpoint of performance and music. The 
coordination of so many people and the overall appearance of the group was very 
much appreciated and applauded by the crowded auditorium on both nights of 
presentation. 

Intramural Program 

The intramural activity program at Northern has been growing year by year. Last 
autumn there were 18 teams for touch football. This autumn we had 26. Last 
winter we had 31 teams of intramural basketball - this winter we had 54. We 
continue to stress intramural programs and with the new physical education 
building for men, we shall be able to offer a much better program than we now 
have. 

Teacher Placement 

The Board will find of interest the fact that Northern placed 205 graduates in 
teaching positions in Cook County, surpassed only by one other institution. 
This was during the college years of 1955-56 and 1954-55. 

IX. MISCELLANEOUS 

Increase in Residence Hall Fees 

Because of the increased cost of food, we should like to report the increase of 
fees at the residence halls, beginning September 1, 1957 at 50c per week. This 
change will appear in the new catalog. Room rent remains the same - $4.:>0 per 
week. 

Purchase of Equipment (Men's Physical Educati on Building) - Previously Approved 
by the Advisory Committee) 

At the November meeting of the Board, permission was granted for the Advisory 
Committee to accept bids and to approve the purchase of a portable floor, 
portable bleachers, score boards and public address system for the new men s 
physical education building. Because of insufficent funds, all bids for the 
public address system were rejected. After further study can be made of the 
sound equipment needs and when sufficient funds become available, bids will 
again be taken for this equipment. Until permanent sound equipment can be 
furnished, either our own portable or rental equipment will be used. 

The Advisory Committee approved the following bids: 

Floor-Chief Manufacturing Company $14,215.40 
Bleachers -Berlin & Chapman^

At the present time the portable bleachers for the sides of the basketball court 
have been ordered at a cost of $29,437, payable from Construction Fund Equip- 
ment, Men's Physical Education Building. A total of $50,000 has been budgeted 
for equipment on the above projects. 

Berlin & Chapman have agreed to supply the end bleachers for the floor,

Dr. Browne next reported that Chairman Walker and he had met with representa- 
tives of the Housing and Home Finance Agency relative to obtaining federal loans for 
the construction of dormitories and married student housing. Dr. Browne stated they 
were told it would improve chances of obtaining a loan and also expedite process of 
an application if the following were adhered to at time of filing an application: 
include all possible information needed; submit the plans and specifications with 
application; since federal loan does not cover movable equipment, information should 
be submitted on how this will be furnished; present a good survey to explain need for 
this additional facility; and have clear title of land to prove it is an adequate 
site for building. It was also learned that the processing of an application is de- 
layed if it is found necessary to make changes in plans and specifications and/or the 
amount of money requested after application has been filed; also, there is a limit, 
in the amount of $3,000,000, on each loan for each project, unless the college should 
have another source of funds to help finance construction of the building. 

Following considerable discussion, Mr. Summers moved that the Board apply for 
loans through the Housing and Home Finance Agency to finance the building of a dormi- 
tory and cafeteria at Northern Illinois State College and the married student housing 
units at each of the four colleges, in the numbers already approved by the Board for 
each college. The motion was seconded by Mr. Dunbar, roll was called, and the vote

Dr 1 Browne presented his Report No . 53 , as Executive Officer, which consisted of 
three parts; namely, Part I^. Tuition Charges , Part II. Legislation (as of March 7) , 
and Part III . Miscellaneous . 

In connection with Part I., Dr. Browne stated that the Illinois teachers col- 
leges charge a "registration fee" which is, in effect, a tuition charge in that it is 
used to help defray the cost of the student's education. Part I. listed this fee, 
together with other fees charged at the four State teachers colleges; for the purpose 
of comparison, the fees charged at the other State-supported colleges in Illinois and 
in neighboring states, as well as charges in State teachers colleges throughout the 
country, were listed. Also included in Part I. was a table which allowed a compari- 
son of charges by the Illinois teachers colleges and other states regarding extra 
tuition fee for out-of-state students » 

Regarding the additional fee charges in the Illinois teachers colleges for out- 
of-state students. Dr. Browne reported that Governor Stratton and the Budgetary Com- 
mission have recommended this fee be increased at the four State teachers colleges. 

Part II. listed legislation already introduced before the 70th General Assembly 
which Dr. Browne believed to be not only of interest to the Board but to the opera- 
tion and administration of the colleges as well. 

Following a detailed explanation by Dr. Browne of the various bills listed, con- 
siderable discussion was held on several of these. 

Regarding Senate Bill No. 126, which would permit th^ Board of Trustees of

Governor, Mr. Summers moved that Dr. Browne be instructed to take necessary steps to 
secure similar legislation for the Teachers College Board. The motion was seconded

Regarding Senate Bills Nos . 8-18, which would change the name of "Northern Illi- 
nois State College" to "Northern Illinois University," Mr. Houle moved the adoption 
of the following resolution: 

WHEREAS, legislation is now proposed that would change the name of 
Northern Illinois State College, making it known as Northern Illinois Uni- 
versity, and, 

277 



WHEREAS, the name "University," unless restricted by a qualifying ad- 
jective such as " Industrial University," " Normal University," or the like, 
properly belongs to institutions of higher education with many, diverse 
functions, and, 

WHEREAS, there is reason to believe that some advocates of the change 
of name desire Northern Illinois State College to add diverse functions, 
departments, colleges, etc., not related in any way to teacher education, 
and, 

WHEREAS, such a change, if effectuated, would seriously alter the pur- 
pose and program of Northern Illinois State College from the clear purpose 
for which it was established and which it has followed so successfully for 
more than half a century, namely teacher education, 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, That the Teachers College Board re- 
affirm its determination to continue to strengthen teacher education in 
Illinois through all of the colleges under its jurisdiction, and. 

That the Teachers College Board express its opinion that the proposed 
change of name of Northern Illinois State College to Northern Illinois Uni- 
versity is not consistent with the long established purpose of the college 
and would not promote the best interests of teacher education.

I asked our Committee of Fifteen to appoint a special committee to recom- 
mend names for the new women's residence halls. The committee consisted 
of Ethel Hanson, Ernest Stover, Eugene Waffle and Charles Coleman, chair- 
man. The committee recommends the following three names:

until her retirement in 1934. Miss Ford was a teacher of foreign 

304 



languages and also served as the first Dean of the college. Miss 
Ford died on June 13, 1948. 

2. Waller Hall - in honor of Annie L. Weller, who served Eastern frcan 
1903 until her retirement in 1940. Miss Weller was Head of the 
Department of Geography. She continues to reside in Charleston.

1911 until her retirement in 1945. Miss McKinney was Head of the 
English Department for the twenty-three years preceding her retire- 
ment. She resides at Claremont, California.

third of his time in the development of a program of student activities.

IV. THE ORGANIZATION 
No report. 

V. THE CURRICULUM 

The curriculum study of the past three years is being discussed with the entire 
faculty and there will probably be some definite recommendations to become ef- 
fective in September 1958. 

VI. BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS 
A. Progress Report 

1. Elementary-Junior High School Building 

This job is moving into the stage of finishing work. All of the masonry 
work, both interior and exterior, is virtually complete, and the cleaning 
of a good portion of the masonry work has been done. The plastering work 
is nearly finished. Most of the millwork has been delivered, and it is 
being primed and installed as rapidly as it is received. The painting is 
proceeding right behind the other trades. 

The ceramic tile work in toilets, etc., is underway, and the tile floor of 
the swimming pool is being laid. The first load of marble for toilet 
stalls has arrived. All of the asphalt floor tile is on the job, but in- 
stallation has not been started. Deliveries are in progress on the chalk- 
boards and corkboards, and these are being installed as received. All 
interior borrowed lights are glazed, and the doors are being glazed. 

The mechanical work is progressing with the general building construction. 
Almost all heating units have been installed, and plumbing fixtures are 
ready to be installed, as the finished flooring work will permit. They 
have started to install light fixtures as the plaster and painting work 
is being completed. 

The temporary buildings have been removed, and outside grading will be 
started as weather permits. 

Approximate status of completion 88% 

Total contract amounts reported in March $1,629,388.00 

Total contract amounts authorized to date 1,630,588.00 

Net change 1,200.00 



325 



The change from last month's report includes (1) installation of nylon 
rope swimming pool net with recessed anchors, and (2) widening the en- 
trance drive and modifying the adjacent sidewalk layout in accordance 
with the approved site plan. 

2. Schroeder Hall 

The big question mark on this job for the past three months has been the 
Herman Nelson heating-cooling units. The first small shipment of these 
finally arrived on March 27, which was two weeks later than the latest 
previous promise of delivery. Repeated telephone calls to Louisville 
and Chicago have resulted in positi-^'e assurances that the remainder of 
the units will be delivered to the job during the week of April 1. 

These units must be set, connected with water and drain connections, ducts 
must be installed serving them, the ducts must be covered, and then the 
lathing can be completed in front of the units. Only then can the plas- 
tering be carried on. It is hoped that plastering operations on a limited 
basis can be started by April 15. 

The setting of the interior steel stairs is nearly complete, and the con- 
crete slabs for the first floor have been poured. Metal door frames are 
being set on the first floor, and lathing will commence here shortly. 
Lathing on the second, third, and fourth floors is about as far as it can 
be carried until the Herman Nelson units are set. 

A portion of the electrical fixtures have been delivered. Except for the 
heating-cooling units, the mechanical work is all making good progress. 
The elevator contractor is scheduled to start his work the week of 
April 1. 

Approximate status of completion 65% 

Total contract amounts reported in March $833,955.27 

Total contract amounts to date $835,400.87 

Net change $ 1,445.60 

The change from last month's report includes revisions requested and ap- 
proved in the mathematics office area on the first floor.

D. Request for Release of Funds for Equipping Buildings 

1. Elementary- Junior High School Building 

Requisitions and lists of equipment which have been received to date for 
the new laboratory school are estimated to cost $150,000. While the re- 
quests are not entirely complete, it is believed that $160,000 will com- 
plete the furnishing of this building. This amount required would be 
greater if we had not been able to move a substantial amount of equipment 
from the existing classrooms. Therefore, we respectfully request the 
release of $160,000 from the appropriation for the laboratory school in 
Senate Bill No. 763 for purchase of equipment. 

2. Schroeder Hall 

Estimates of requests for equipment for the new classroom building will 
probably exceed the $51,750 unreleased funds in the appropriation for this 
project. It is recommended that $51,750 be requested for release for 
purchase of equipment from the appropriation for the classroom building. 
Senate Bill No. 763. 

While this amount may not be completely adequate, it is hoped that by 
using some existing furniture we can fill the most urgent needs.

A. Regional Red Cross Blood Donation Campaign 

1. Illinois State Normal University has set a record for the third 
consecutive year for the number of pints of blood donated during 
the Regional Red Cross Blood Donation Campaign. I.S.N.U. pre- 
viously had established a record of 407 pints during a given 
two-day period, but on March 19 and 20 almost 600 students con- 
tributed 470 pints of blood. We were happy to receive the recog- 
nition of an editorial in the Daily Pantagraph which stated, 
"I.S.N.U. Blood Donors Care About People." Dr. Bjarne Ullsvik 
is to be especially thanked for his leadership and work in this 
program. ,

I. We have two faculty members who retired before the University Retirement 
System of Illinois went into effect in 1941; therefore, their monthly re- 
tirement allowances appear on our regular pay roll . The amount of their 
retirement allowance is set by the Teachers College Board. Several years 
ago, upon the recommendation of Dr. Buzzard and myself, the Board was kind 
enough to Increase the monthly allowance for these Individuals in all four 
colleges from $110 to $175 per month. At this time I am asking considera- 
tion by the Board to Increase the two individuals we have on our faculty 
from $175 to $200 per month.

IV. ORGANIZATION 

Under Auxiliary Enterprises you will find a request concerning the reorganiza- 
tion of our food services. 

V. CURRICULUM 

This is a brief report on our success with the rearrangement concerning the 
teaching of English for freshmen. In case the Board does not recall, it was 
that all freshmen were required to take Speech 222 the fall quarter, English 

112 or 113 (depending upon their proficienty) the winter quarter, and English 

113 or 114 the spring quarter. In a meeting with the members of the English 
department during the past week they were very enthusiastic about the new 
arrangement but would not make any definite statements until the plan has been 
used at least one more year as to what effect it had upon the teaching of 
freshman English or the reception of such by freshmen. 

VI. BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS 

Progress on the construction of the dormitories and student center was delayed 
slightly due to the unusual weather during the last week of March. 

VII. AUXILIARY ENTERPRISES 

We hereby request that the Board approve the plan of contracting with the Saga 
Food Service to operate our dining halls in Grote Hall and in the new bond 
revenue project, and also the college cafeteria. We have negotiated with them 
on the new dining hall to provide the residents 21 meals per week for 36 weeks 
at $10.00 per week per person. They have also agreed to supervise the prepara- 
tion of food, plan the menus, and do the purchasing of food for our two auxil- 
iary enterprises, Grote Hall and the cafeteria. 

We have received an opinion from the University Civil Service legal counsel that 
it is perfectly legal to employ this type of firm even though they employ their 
own personnel to operate the new dining hall. In the cafeteria and Grote Hall 
they will use our Civil Service employees. 

We have spent months investigating this firm and found them to be the leader in 
the field of college food service. We have for your scrutiny, if you so desire, 
the contract which has been prepared for signatures. We recommend that this 
contract be on a one-year basis and feel sure it will be beneficial to everyone 
concerned. 

We have worked with Mr. Samoore and determined that by charging the residents 
of the dormitories $16,00 per week (recently increased from $15) we will be more 
than able to meet our debt service requirements on the new bond issue. This 



348 



contract will be for the period September 1, 1957 through June 1, 1958. 

VIII. STUDENT AND FACULTY ACTIVITIES
